Day Hike - Santa Ana del Valle
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
The community museum in the town square in Santa Ana will be the starting point of this hike up a hill just outside town to the site of some unexcavated ruins. There is a very nice view of the Tlacolula valley from the top of the hill. Getting some fresh air and exercise is the main point of today’s venture. Be forewarned that the trail has a loose and rocky tread, and is perhaps the most difficult climb in the hiking program. We will need to hire local guides to accompany us to the top of the hill. After the hike the group will stop in Tule for lunch at any of several restaurants on the main street.
